I was talking to Ben last night about the Gunfighter movie. I told him how someone badgered the soldier for the better part of a year one time. The guy just harassed and harassed him. He told him he was a pussy, that he’d never been a green beret and so on and on. I am talking day in and day out. “You’re a pussy, you’re an asshole, you’re a piece of shit…”
The soldier warned him to shut up many times but guy did not have the sense and then one day the soldier had enough. The guy called him a name and in the space of just a few seconds, the soldier has him in a totally compromised position, literally 1/4 inch from dying just about the most horrible, violent death you can imagine.
“Why do people push people like that?” Ben asked.
I didn’t have an answer for that but I note the soldier has a very long fuse which is a well known Taurean trait. He has Saturn in aspect to Mars which offers the ability to control his temper.
I have a decently long fuse but it is of no use at all because you can’t see it burn. I am candid, even brusque with people I like and when I become ultra solicitous it is a sure sign I loathe the person and I am ready to strike. Mars in Libra.
What is your fuse like? Long? Short? Nonexistent? Where is your Mars.
